  • [Barrier No: 8]
  • Speedy sprinter-miler who is hard to run down whenever he gets his own way in front. Unplaced at last couple of starts but he had excuses. Did not quite handle the Polytrack two runs back and lost a shoe at his last outing. Has not quite measured up to the best sprinters, though. Needs to be on top of the ground and barrier draw critical. Looks tested in this, but can run a cheeky race if he gets a soft lead.

Patrick Shaw
Patrick Shaw, 58, started out as stable employee in 1988 before being upgraded with a professional trainer's licence by the Jockey Club of Southern Africa in 1990. Shaw was consistently among the Top-10 trainers in South Africa and counts his success with Teal in the 1995 Durban July as his biggest achievement before relocating to Singapore in 2001. His first horse of note was Palace Line, who won the International Group 3 Singapore Classic and the Singapore Guineas in 2002. Boosted by his close association with prominent South African owner Fred Crabbia, Shaw has prepared useful horses like Blizz Bless, Que Expresion and War Horn, but none comes close to Singapore’s champion sprinter Rocket Man. A winner of 20 races from 27 starts, Rocket Man rewrote Singapore history in 2011 when he became the first Singapore-trained horse to win an International Group 1 race, landing the Group 1 Dubai Golden Shaheen at Meydan in 2011. Two months later, he broke through for his first KrisFlyer win at his third attempt. That year also saw Shaw clinch his first trainer’s premiership title after preparing 78 winners. He made it back-to-back KrisFlyer triumphs when Ato saluted in 2012.The South African handler will be the busiest trainer at the Internationals this year, saddling a big team of five runners, including four in the SIA Cup.
Nooresh Juglall
Nooresh Juglall, 23, was born in the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius but honed his craft in South Africa where he won two champion apprentice titles in 2011-2012 and 2012-2013. He also captured two Highveld apprentice jockey championships, and boasts 10 Group wins to his name, notably the Triple Tiara, which includes the Group 2 Wilgerbosdrift Gauteng Fillies Guineas, Group 1 Wilgerbosdrift SA Fillies Classic and Group 2 Wilgersbosdrift SA Oaks with champion filly Cherry On The Top for veteran trainer Ormond Ferraris. Since his Kranji riding debut in June 2014, Juglall has made an immediate impact, recording 27 wins at his first season, including one at Group 3 level with Magneto (his KrisFlyer ride) in the Committee’s Prize to wind up in 10th place on the Singapore jockey’s premiership. Despite his young age and the fact he only came out of his time in March 2014, Juglall has already enjoyed plenty of overseas experience, having, besides South Africa, Mauritius and Singapore, also ridden in Zimbabwe, Qatar and Macau, the latter two at apprentice jockeys’ challenges where he represented South Africa, winning one race in Qatar.
